Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

When we visit Daughter Sarah, her Andy and Grand girl Lucy
one of our favorite places to visit 
is the

We've been there almost every season
and it is fun to see what they do for each season!


Is the Pumpkin House

The Scarecrows!

My favorite!

A homage to our Kansas roots . . .

And one for friend Shirley Ann
(I think she should recreate this one in her front yard!)

And a walk around the "Arb"
found these volunteers busily planting


Thousands of bulbs!

And in the herb garden

I found Minnesota Master Gardeners
We had a lot to talk about
(and they were most envious of our Zone 6!)

Grand girl Lucy and Daughter Sarah were there as well.

Here is Grand girl Lucy
trying to catch up to Nana!

It's Wednesday and I'm joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamers for Outdoor Wednesday.    The "Arb" is a great place to be in the fall!

Lucy is darling! Where is the Arboretum located? My hubby is from MN and we visit back there (Fargo/Moorhead area).
